Shetland pony by laetitiapetrussa

Shetland pony

Seeing these flies around and on their eyes always makes my eyes tear up. I guess it's an empathic reaction. I wonder how they cope with it.

They keep ponies as a large grazing animal in the nature reserves at the coast.
Great shot and I feel like you do about seeing the flies around their heads...think it would drive me crazy if i had no hands to swat them away with.

Beautiful shot. The eyelashes are amazing, but most amazing is the eye - so much depth.

@gardencat @judithaltman @scatcat @monty147 @susanalena @rosiekind Thanks girls for your lovely comments! It took me a few shots to find a way to limit the reflection and to focus on the eye and not just the eyelashes. And to have the pony looking somewhat in my direction. The green you see is most probably the reflected grass. And even seeing this photo, my eyes are tearing up... It's weird because I can handle a great deal of blood and gore, this is just different. Like I can feel the flies crawling in my eye.
